Default FS: Hobart Engine-driven Welder, Very Heavy Duty, in Oregon

This is a heavy duty, US-made, ex-military, engine-driven Welder with a lot of life left in it.

It's an older Hobart, running a Chrysler Industrial 6 cylinder flathead engine.

The engine is in good running condition, and is worth some bucks by itself. The commutator and brushes on the welder look good. Lots of years left on it.

The welder is already on an axle, with car-size tires; so it's easily towable. Tires aren't great, but do hold air.

It runs and welds as-is right now; and with a little TLC it'd be perfect again.

The only things I know aren't 100% are......Fuel tank has a slow leak, auto-idle solenoid has never worked, and the float-valve has started sticking closed once in a while.

None of these things affect the machine's quality or ability to do work.

I'm selling it because I just got a service truck with its own engine-driven welder on it.

This Hobart is rated at 300 amps at -100%- duty-cycle; and will put out nearer 400 amps at 50% duty-cycle. That's great for air-arc gouging etc..

It's one of the smoothest stick-welders I've ever owned.

Tow it home today for $490 obo, cash only please; no checks.

Will trade for plasma-cutter; flatbed trailer; 5th wheel RV; diesel genset, pump, or engines; heavy equipment stuff...?? Will take a large propane fridge that chills well as partial trade.

You can see pics of it by clicking this link....
